I hope that the Lightfoot tune they selected for the album was "Pony Man". It just sounds like the kind of tune that a parent might be inclined to sing to a small child at bedtime.

I just received this CD..very cute songs. The Snacktime Trilogy is not sung to the tune of the Lightfoot CRT..nor does Lightfoot sing.
In the liner notes thanks are given to the various artists.. i.e.:
Jason "mac and Cheese" Priestley, Sarah "Chocolate" McLachlan, Geddy "Barbeque Potato Chips" Lee and Gordon "Pasta" Lightfoot..
lol

Somebody went to the wrong Snack Bar.


FAYETTEVILLE, N.Y. - The singer and guitarist for the band Barenaked Ladies has been arrested on drug charges in upstate New York.

Police say Steven Page was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance on Friday in the Syracuse area.

Authorities say the arrest occurred at about 2 a.m. after police noticed a suspicious car with its driver's side door left open. They say they found Page and two women in a nearby apartment, along with cocaine and marijuana.

Barenaked Ladies' manager Terry McBride confirmed the charge to the Post-Standard of Syracuse but declined to comment further. The singer, released after paying $10,000 bail, is due in court Thursday.

Page helped form the band in 1988. The group, know for hits such as "One Week" and "Pinch Me" recently released their debut kids CD "Snacktime."

May I, Daisy Doo, The Pony Man, and Flyin' Blind would be good songs for a children album.
